Matt's SRL tune MPG results

I recently installed the SRL tune I got from Matt and went on a roadtrip this weekend. I got 18.9 mpg at 75 mph. This is all hand calculated and milage was pulled from my gps since everything in reguards to speed and distance is incorrect because of my tires. Just thought some people would like to know if they are on the line about purchasing this tune. Hope this helps!

Man, that's great!! That makes me really want to get the SRL+ or SRL++ tune for my truck. My fuel mileage is terrible, partly because I have the latest FICM flash.

How long did it take for PHP to send you the programmer to tune your FICM? And has that affected your mileage at all?

I only have 33x13's but I can hardly squeeze 13.5 MPG outa mine, but I do mostly city driving.

I got the programmer in about four weeks, the guys at PHP are great. The FICM part you can do yourself, the ecm/pcm they reprogram the programmer over the internet and then walk you through the roll back. I picked up about two mpg's with the PHP upgrades but, the eal benefit is running those uprgrades with custom tunes. Stock no tune I get 14mpg, sucks!! Put on Matt's tune and almost 19mpg. I owe that man a beer! Oh yeah, the PHP stuf changed the entire attitude of my truck, starts quicker, idles way smoother and the shifts change also. I was afraid I was going to loose the smooth shifting with the SRL but Matt knows his stuff, it's on the money!! I wish I had studs so I could try his higher power stuff. I need tire right now so that's first.

I picked up about a 1 to 1.5 mpg's around town with his SLR tune. I will find out Friday how it does on the highway when we go to the inlaws casa (about 350 miles one way).

The pcm rollback resets your strategy to an earlier program. I went back to the VXCF4 from the VXCF9. Ford reflashes your truck when you take it in for service, if you ask for it or not. So if you pay to roll it back don't take it back to Ford or they will do you a favor and give you the latest update. It helps with milage and tranny shifting. You will notice quite a difference in the over all operation of the truck.

I think you need to get new tunes with the PCM flash, right?

I want to say the total was around $225.00. Just go to PHP's web site and fill out the order sheet they have. They will then send you an email when they have a programmer to send out to you. They do not bill you until this time when they are ready to ship. They have a couple of programmers out and about, it took about 4-5 weeks to get mine. The FICM is straight forward like installing a tune on your truck. Make sure you put your truck back to stock before you do any of this. For the PCM you have to call them when you are ready and have the programmer, they will have you plug it into your usb port and download an install program from their website. They send the new PCM info to the programmer and then walk you through, on the phone, the rollback process. They are not open on Friday or the weekends so, if you get it on Friday you have to wait until Monday to do the PCM. Once complete you will have a new strategy and you need to get your custom tunes redone for the new strategy. PHP provides a return shipping label so when you are done you take it to UPS and when they recieve it they give you your deposit back, $100 I think maybe a little more. Totally worth the money though, you will enjoy the benefits. They send instructions with the programmer that are very clear and easy to understand. Hope this helps.
